Dieter Tasso (born Dieter Krakow in 1934 in Berlin, Germany) has been performing since 1947 and is still going strong. His act includes routines featuring three balls, three cigar boxes, three top hats, and his most famous routine, kicking a series of cups and saucers onto his head! He was a star with Ringling from 1952 to 1955, performing the cups and saucers kick up routine on a unicycle on a slack rope! In addition to being a wonderful technical juggler, he also integrates superb comedy into his act. He is most likely the oldest performing juggler in the world.
